Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Sickert's writings are immensely enjoyable. Reading them, one reflects on how little has changed in the art world.... The Complete Writings on Art constitutes the most comprehensive selection of Sickert's criticism to date, including much previously unpublished material."—Times Literary Supplement

"Robins's edition is of permanent value.... With great diligence, she has retrieved a cache of early journalism mostly written between 1889 and 1897."—Spectator

"Robins has compiled a major document of English art history in exemplary style."—London Review of Books

"A real labour of love...offering a great deal of new insight into Sickert as artist, polemicist and man-about-town. Brilliantly annotated, it's also great fun."—Irish Times
